. so the question is, is this a good deal for the city. the first question that comes up, to be honest, goes to the last point -- last couple of points that mr. rose made. this company bought this for $21 million. over the course of a 20-year lease we will pay about $70 million in rent. even if we hadn't just spnt the $21 million, if we had financed that purchase, you are talking about paying $34 million to actually own the property and have that asset. instead, we are talking about spending $70 million in rent. after 20 years we're not going to own that property. so what happened here in terms of, you know, managing the writer's money. you and i have had the conversation, the challenges the mta has had to en counter the last few years. the county transportation gave the mta * $7 million because there was a shortfall in the budget so that, you know, we could lessen the impact of the service cuts that had to be made by the mta. and yet we have a situation that we could have bought this property for $21 million. maybe as high as $34. why didn't that happen? >> okay. thank you, supervisor
